Immigration Attorney Learns of New Model for EB-5 Investor Visas

Posted: August 6th, 2013 | Author: | Filed under: Investor Visas | Tags: , | No Comments »

EB-5 Investor Visas are granted to those who invest $1 million or $500,000 in an existing commercial enterprise and create 10 new US jobs.  The difference in the investment amount depends on whether the enterprise is located in an area of high unemployment.  For a full blog post on the requirements please see our previous blog post on EB-5 Investor Visas.

Investor Visas

For a while after these visas were created immigrant investors had to find an existing commercial enterprise themselves.  Then the government permitted regional centers.  Regional centers pool investments and manage the money as well as the creation of jobs.  Different regional centers operate in different ways.  Some concentrate on maximum returns to the investor, others on exit strategy.

Now there is a new model.  E3 Investment Group of New York have developed a 3rd way to manage EB-5 investments.  Their press release explaining the program is copied below:

E3 Investment Group has achieved a critical milestone by securing its first investor in its innovative Scalable-Direct(TM) EB-5 program business model.

NEW YORK, N.Y., July 31, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — via PRWEB – E3 Investment Group, headquartered in New York, announced today that it signed its first investor in its Scalable-Direct(TM) EB-5 investment business model. The Scalable-Direct(TM) model may be the first of its kind to allow foreign nationals who invest their capital as part of the United States government’s EB-5 immigrant investor visa program to receive the benefits of an enterprise class organization, while each remaining independent from all other investors by being the only investor in its entity. This is designed to allow the investor to receive permanent residency in the United States, while using their capital to create jobs in high unemployment areas for US citizens and permanent residents.

According to Matt Gordon, Managing Director of E3 Investment Group, “The Scalable-Direct(TM) business model is simple. Each investor invests the required $500,000 in its own entity. The money buys the operating assets and hires ten or more employees. That satisfies the U.S. Government EB-5 program requirements. We manage all the entities together to provide economies of scale and high quality management to reduce the risk. Unlike other models, different investors’ assets and employment creation are never mixed.”

“Now that we have completed this critical milestone, we look forward to continuing to build out our program and help many of the world’s best, brightest and most entrepreneurial citizens accomplish their goal of helping build America and living the American dream.”
